Sometimes it’s just not enough to stare at the food porn. You need to gnaw on it with your eating claws – especially if it’s healthy. The woman that is She-Fit concocted this waffley recipe you need to know about. But it’s not those waffles from Romania, neither is it the ones from Peru. They’re Belgian, baby!

Low Cal Belgian Waffles

  • 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1 3/4 cups skim milk
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup flax seed meal
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


1. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, oil, applesauce, and vanilla. Beat in other ingredients.

2. Preheat a waffle iron, and coat with non-fat cooking spray. Pour batter into waffle iron in batches, and cook until crisp and golden brown.

You can opt for low cal toppings like I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter Spray, fresh strawberries or fat-free whip cream.

Now get ‘ta chewing!

    Great recipe.  Pooldad asked for waffles the other day and I will definitely try it tomorrow if he has to stay home from work tomorrow.

    Thanks. 😀

      I’m sure the Peruvimites eat waffles. No? And darn, I was totally going for serious face in the Shakeology pic. Now you reveal to me I’ve failed? Dammit!

    and here I am without whole wheat flour—but not without the motivation to mess with the recipe and see what I mightcould use instead :)

  3. Patrick says:

    I like to place crushed almonds in the batter before cooking up the waffle. I know it adds some fat back, but it is healthy fat, I hope anyhow… I hope for lots of things, like cats & dogs to play nice together and bacon to naturally become fat free; a boy can dream!
